ROC Christmas Appeal raises £6,745 to support patients and staff!

Happy New Year! We hope you all had a magical festive season and a prosperous New Year. 

During the festive period at the Trust, the Royal Orthopaedic Charity (ROC) hosted an array of activities to raise funds for our Christmas Appeal which included hosting a Christmas market to celebrate our recent rebrand, Giving Tuesday, a Christmas bake sale, festive dress day, a Christmas Party, a drop and shop sale and more!

The total raised was an incredible £6742! This is the most we have ever raised and it continues to help our patients and staff feel supported throughout the Winter months.

We recently rebranded to ROC, (Royal Orthopaedic Charity) and were given a fresh identity to reflect the dynamic and life-changing work we support. To celebrate, we hosted a Christmas Market with a variety of talented, local vendors:

-Brockleby’s Pies
-Crafty Cotton & Hook
-Helande Aromatherapy Candles
-Lisa’s Sweet Treats
-Really Awesome Coffee
-Silk Roads Soaps
-The Brownie Boss
-Tokidokie Cookies
-What The Cluck

On 20th December, Sophie Sykes held a Christmas Carol Concert for friends and family in order to raise money for ROC. An impressive £421 was raised! Sophie has had three spinal operations and has been under the care of The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital since she was 8 years old.  She is now 15 and it has been a year since her last operation.  She plays the piano to relax, especially during the times when she needs to recuperate.

Sophie stated, “I just wanted to raise some money to give thanks back to the hospital after all they have done for me over the years, I have been a patient there. They have done so much for me, so I am able to keep on doing what I love. I am very grateful to everyone who has supported me over the years.”

We are extremely thankful to have raised received over £1586 worth of gifts-in-kind to support our raffles at the Christmas market and Christmas party. We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who have given to us throughout the festive period. A huge thank you to those who supported out Christmas Appeal
